Good call

My real hesitation is the money. This will be a display piece, not a toy. I'd love Todd's even more if it wasn't a real whip and because of that was much cheaper. But alas, he had to make the stupid thing crack

I don't know if Todd is still doing this, but he was going to make a budget whip which would be made completely of rubber. The one he's offering now just has a rubber core.

He has a place for it on the site, but no photo yet. I called the shop today to make a few inquries, and whoever answered the phone (possibly Todd) was really friendly. Little things like that create loyalty in my book.

Has anyone tried making a whip holder?
I think I might do that rather than pay $20 bucks for one.
Same with the bag strap.

I've thought of making my own whip holder. It shouldn't be too difficult. I'd still rather buy one, though.

I wouldn't even know where to begin on making something like that-mine wouldn't come out very good at all. I just ordered one from Todd though, but if yours is good Snakes, maybe I'll order one from you.


BTW, I just received my Wested jacket and shirt, and they are absolutely incredible! I can't believe the quality of the material, and, for me, it's pretty screen accurate! Pics to follow soon, as I am still waiting on my Fedora (I figure that would have been the first thing I received).

Z, I've always wanted to get a Wested shirt (always as in a year). I've heard the material is nice. Almost too nice, but it looks great to me. The only thing I would change if I could, if I got one, would be to dye it a more khaki color. "Stone."

BTW, which jacket did you get? I have an off-the-rack Special Offer 'Raiders' "Crunch" lamb. It is pretty awesome, IMO.

I see what you mean. It is a very nice khaki though; I'll have to get a picture up. What blows me away is the quality of the material. This is a very nice quality threaded material. It's not at all costumish at all; honestly, it's one of the nicer shirts I have seen. It doesn't appear extremely dresy or anything, but you can tell that it is going to last for a very long time, which is what I want.

My jacket is the Raiders Jacket
Leather: Authentc Bown Lambskin
Lining / Zip: Cotton Body-Satin Sleeves (rec)

I love it man!!!!

I did see that Hatsdirect recently raised the price of their Akubra Federation to the same as the Federation deluxe. That's stupid. Personally, I'm looking at a Camptown Model 1936 "Fieldmaster." They look very nice, especially for the price.
1936 "Fieldmaster"

EDIT: I just checked Hatsdirect.com and they've LOWERED the price of the Federation regular! The price was a lot higher yesterday. I'd grab one now, if you're still interested.

BTW, I'm having the hardest time getting a hold of Hats Direct. I definitely want to go with the Fieldmaster, but I believe they are short one person, and are most likely having a hard time filling orders.

Hats Direct is also out of several sizes in their Federations.

I would say either keep emailing them, or just wait for a reply. They're really good with customer service.

Oh, and I'm sorry if you got the impression that Hats Direct sells the "Fieldmaster." That's the Camptown Company. Then again I might be misunderstanding you.

Lost out on this by a cent.



It's a 10' 8 plait snake whip.I would have put my max bid in with seconds to go like usual, but it ended at 6:00 and that's when I get off of work.

I ended up getting this one instead.



It's a 10' four plait. I did not get this one from jrzjoe. This one costs less than his and is from a seller called borderlinedesign. I think it looks kind of cheap compared to the snakewhip I lost, but it was only $25! That's cheaper than jrzjoe's and from the pics as good of quality. I feel better having spent only that much rather than $100+ for something I'm never going to use. Perhaps in the future I'll upgrade to a Winrich, Caicedo's, or even Todd's, but I think this will hold me over until that day comes.

Katarn, I have a very similar whip from JrzJoe, I believe both yours and mine are made by the same person altho, sold by a few differant peoples. Its great for my display purposes, sure beats $800 just sitting on my desk as a static prop.

I know that you can get pretty good fedoras for extremely low prices at Berlington Coat Factory.

I got my gun belt, holster, whip holder, and regular belt from Todd's today. Great quality stuff from them, as always.

Here are some pics now!

First, a few of the holster; you can also see Indy's regular belt in a few of these.




Here's the whole thing with the whip holder:


Here's a close up of the whip holder:


I'm extremely happy with these purchases!

Is the whip holder really worth $20? Seems a little pricey. Either way, I'm looking into getting some gear from Todd's. Looks like good stuff.

I'm not really sure if it's worth $20, or if it was overpriced, to be honest. I know it seems to work very well, and it looks great too. You may be able to find cheaper ones hopefully.

Gun Belt...

I've already got the gun belt, whip holder, and SandW holster from Todd's and must say it is perfect!
I'm now waiting on a HJ Fedora and deluxe whip from them. I am looking very much forward to receiving those in the mail. Its been a little bit of a wait, but well worth it I would imagine.

Is that the standard or the deluxe gunbelt?
